A good set of fake chompers will set you back about a grand, so if you have your eye on a fly pair, be prepared to pay. It's all part of the code of conduct every denture-wearer should adhere to before adhering a set.
For instance, don't get them by ripping them out of your mother's mouth -- because if police catch you, they probably won't even let you wear them for your mugshot.
Christopher Harding allegedly ignored that cardinal rule of denture procurement, says a story by Click2Houston. All according to police: Harding grabbed his disabled mother's throat and threw her to the ground, raining blows on her face with his fists.
As he was choking her, he ripped out her upper dentures from her mouth. Harding then fled the house, fake teeth in hand.
Harding is charged with injuring a disabled person, a rap that may bite him -- with a perfectly aligned bite mark -- in the ass.
